Make your own Flowers

I don't seem to have used my magnolia stamps for ages.......so decided to make a card for a friend's birthday this week..........the Just Magnolia challenge is to use punches.......and Cupcake Crafts want you to make your own flowers........so combined the two......added a bit of inspiration from Deb's wonderful tutorial.....and came up with this.
Image coloured with copics.............used K & Co Addison papers......lots of layering wanted by Roses on Paper challenge........following the sketch at Papertake Weekly..........and the flowers have 3 layers......2 punched with scallop edged circle punches.....the middle layer a plain circle.......all scrunched up.......and finally a gem added.
The flowers are the new technique [to me] that Crafty Cardmakers want.

Love the colours you have used for this, and those flowers have come out great! Your Magnolia stamps always look so neat and professional, tell me, what do you use for colouring them in? Mine don't look as 'sharp' as yours!
